Web of Knowledge - Custom Summary Report

The Custom Summary report shows monthly usage statistics for the variables and time period you specified on the Create a Custom Summary Report page.

Custom Summary Table

Depending on your selections, the Summary table shows daily statistics for these variables:

At the bottom of the table are two rows showing Total Use and Average Use.

If you selected the option to Include User Credentials on the Create a Custom Summary Report page, then the table will have an additional column with this heading: Credentials . To the right of the credential in the same row are usage statistics for that credential. The date of usage is in the row above and to the left of the credential.

For example, this report shows that during December 2004, the person(s) using the computer whose IP address is 123.45.678 successfully logged onto Web of Knowledge three times, and the person(s) using the computer whose address is 123.65.432 successfully logged onto Web of Knowledge five times. The maximum number of users who could have concurrent sessions is ten. The average length of a session was 17 minutes and 50 seconds. There were no turnaways.

Custom Summary Graph

Depending on the selections you made on the Create a Summary Report page, any of these three graphs appear at the bottom of the page.

  • Sessions & Turnaways. The points on the Y-axis (ordinate) show the session and turnaway numbers for the dates on the X-axis (abscissa).

  • Average Length. A bar chart plots the average session length per month.

  • Maximum Actual Users & Maximum Contractual Users. The points on the Y-axis (ordinate) plot the numbers of actual and contractual users for the dates plotted on the X-axis (abscissa).

Note: If usage statistics are broken down by user credential, no graphs will appear. If you want to see usage data plotted on a graph, click the Web of Knowledge portal link at the top of the page. Clear the Include User Credentials check box, and then click Submit.
